Take workshops with wellness star Candice Kumai
Candice Kumai is a classically trained chef, Top Chef alum, and author of five best-selling books with a sixth on the way in April. Her most meaningful and personal publication yet, Kintsugi Wellness, The Japanese Art of Nourishing Mind, Body, and Spirit explains Japanese wellness traditions—and how to use your own heritage for wellness.
You’ll be the first to receive a copy of Kintsugi Wellness as well as experience exclusive workshops from the book with Candice. You’ll learn practices and insights for personal growth and exploration, nutrition-based intel such as The Ultimate Matcha Explainer workshop, how to add anti-inflammatory and fermented foods into your daily meals, plus her recipe for glowing skin.
Get sweaty with super-buzzy fitness instructor Charlee Atkins
Charlee Atkins created the Le Sweat and Le Stretch workout methods, which have a huge fan-following in New York City, where she is also a Master SoulCycle instructor.
On this Retreat, you’ll experience serious toning action with Atkins’ Le Sweat body-sculpting mat workout—then a super healthy dose of recovery work with her signature myofascial release Le Stretch method, considered the first class in NYC entirely devoted to stretching. The combination of Atkins’ two workouts over the day will challenge you—and support you. Plus her fun teaching style and great playlists make it an inspiring way to sweat.
Experience serious renewal at our healthy retreat home: The Avalon
Well+Good will be taking over the entire Avalon Hotel Palm Springs for a seriously intimate experience for our readers. The style of the boutique property is Hollywood Regency, updated with a chill white color palette by star interiors designer Kelly Wearstler.
Accommodations range from private bungalows with gas fireplaces and patios, to balcony suites overlooking the pool and rooms made for sharing with views of fountains and swaying palms. (Pictured here: One of the three pools, and a guest bungalow, at right.)
Enjoy super-healthy meals
During the Well+Good Retreat, you’ll enjoy fresh ingredients and delicious dishes curated by Well+Good and Candice Kumai, including family-style lunches and al-fresco dinners in the garden, all prepared with love (and skill) by Chef Jason Moffitt.
And we’ve got your beauty needs covered with Drunk Elephant skin care
And you can leave your skin-care products at home: You’ll have Drunk Elephant travel-size products (including a great non-toxic SPF 30 sunscreen for your face) waiting for you in your room—PLUS the entire Drunk Elephant Trunk will be delivered to your door back home, a value of $550.
